From The Hollywood Reporter:

In addition to being one of the most contro­versial conservative pundits on television, Ann Coulter has tried her luck at acting. In 2007, she made a few appearances on the Fox News series The ½Hour News Hour. And now Coulter plays the U.S. vice president in Syfy’s Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!(July 22).

She spoke with THR from her book tour for Adios, America: The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country Into a Third World Hellhole, though she clearly was in no mood for a serious political discussion.

You’re not known for acting. How do you like it?

I’ve been acting for years. I always act surprised when Marco Rubio says something stupid. My greatest acting performance was pretending to enjoy the movie Selma.

Where did you shoot your scenes?

We shot for a few hours at Sea World. Only two or three animals were harmed. Tops. Sushi was awesome.

Do you think you’re a good actor?

I think I’m as good an actor as Lena Dunham, so no.
